Touring now is a one-woman show for adult audiences called Snap (formally called Mummy Monster). Snap is a site-specific kitchen show that is performed in private homes, community venues and at festivals. It is about a mother's journey from a seeming state of balance into a state in which she is no longer fully in control. It is my personal exploration into isolation, increasing responsibility and the times when I ‘lose it’. Read on to find out more.

I was also delighted to work with MotherShip in Birmingham in June 2018 as part of their PLAYGroup project. This is a befriending project for newly arrived mothers and local mothers and their 0-4 year olds. Snap was performed at The Meena Centre, home of Help Refugees. This was the unofficial women and children's centre in the Calais jungle until it had to find a new home, now on the edge of Birmingham's jewellery quarter.
